Some Fresh Ideas on Recycling Plastic

June 10, 2003

Re "Wanted: More Bottle Recycling Opportunities," letters, June 4: I am an apartment dweller in Los Angeles, and a recycling bin is not offered to our building. I have to go out of my neighborhood to recycle at a store. The earnings can be used only at that specific store within a limited period of time. My solution? Keep the bags of bottles in my car trunk and donate them to the next person I find collecting bottles from the trash bins to pay the rent or to put new shoes on his or her child. I win for doing a good deed and my lucky "lottery winner" gets a few dollars.

To eliminate plastic bottle disposal problems in a truly environmentally sound way, clean up the public water supply to make it really safe and appealing for drinking so people will not have to buy it in plastic bottles.
